What is this?
SoyLife EXTRA is a soy germ concentrate standardized to 10% isoflavones. Specially selected high-quality soy germs are the starting material for SoyLife EXTRA production. This is different from many isoflavone extracts, which are concentrated from soy molasses, or other materials that result from extensive fractionations.
Because SoyLife EXTRA has been produced from soy germ, the isoflavones in SoyLife EXTRA are present in their natural matrix of soy micronutrients, such as 8% unsaturated fatty acids, 14% dietary fibers, 15% prebiotic oligosaccharides, 30% highly nutritious protein and 10% saponins. More and more, scientists draw the conclusion that this natural Soy Matrix® may enhance the efficacy of the isoflavones.
The isoflavone profile of SoyLife EXTRA has a typical soy germ ratio of genistein : daidzein : glycitein, which is 15 : 50 : 35. Isoflavones are related to health benefits such as relief of menopausal symptoms, PMS, bone health, and heart health. The efficacy of SoyLife extracts has been confirmed in a number of clinical studies. The fact that SoyLife EXTRA is relatively rich in the isoflavone daidzein is interesting, as scientists increasingly attach value to the efficacy of its metabolite equol.
Application and dosage
SoyLife EXTRA offers you the convenience of one-per-day capsules and tablets. The ingredient is also ideal for soft-gel capsules, as it is has a lighter color and a smaller granulation than many other isoflavone ingredients. In a wide variety of food applications, SoyLife EXTRA behaves like soy flour. It can add to the structure of food products, without altering the taste profile. Depending on the health message on your label, the recommended inclusion of SoyLife EXTRA varies between 300 and 600 mg per day.
SoyLife EXTRA is a tan / white powder. Its taste is slightly bitter, due to its richness in isoflavones. SoyLife EXTRA is kosher, halal and non-GMO, and packaged in 10 kg cardboard drums with polyethylene inliner.
